Re: Skin very dry from radiotherapy

Dear Linda Sorry to hear about your husband's ongoing symptoms. Without seeing him in person or the photos of his skin rash; it is impossible to be certain however, if he has scaly spots on nose and lower eyelid, I would be considering a diagnosis of Actinic keratosis.

Re: Treating scarring from old spots

Hello As suggested, it's important to classify the type of scars correctly and location of scars before considering treatment options. Lasers, surgical scar removal and subcision etc. all may help the right kind of scars. Scars on face do better than those on the body. Best wishes Dr. Vishal Madan M...

Re: Please help. Worried to pieces

Hello Mike

Don't worry, just looking at the pics, this looks fine, perhaps a traumatised skin tag However, if you have private health care, best to get this reviewed by the dermatologist next week.

Overall, just looking at the pics, I wouldn't be too worried.

Best wishes

Re: 2 summer again strange freckles

Thanks for your question. Even a single sun burn episode increases the risk of skin cancer formation. I would recommend that you get your skin checked by your GP/Dermatologist for reassurance sake. You mention allergy to suncreams. Have you had patch testing or photo patch testing? It would be wise ...
